I'm going to ask this here, b/c the instruments are a little different than the regular ones, as well as that I can't really find any discussion (at least not easily) about what people are doing, so sorry if it's repetitive...
I've read a lot use large duffel bags etc to get the gear around, but the one thread I read was an old one in the general forms. I really prefer not to just toss everything next loose in a flimsy bag.
Any suggestions on what to get to carry stuff around for various parties and such? I don't want to spend too too much, but I'd rather put a bit out there to help keep them safe, than have to fork out more later to replace. I'm willing to wrap things in a cheap blanket/fabric as well, but even w/ the flimsy sides, one drop the wrong way could be quite bad, even w/ the extra padding.
I'd really prefer something that's not only fabric that separates the instruments from the elements but also isn't hard to get around for my short stature. I was hoping to use a large roller suitcase I had, but it seems the neck of the guitar(s) (even w/o the head) is still too long for that. I also read that someone uses/used a 40 gal rubbermaid style tub, but I'm not sure if the 40 is (a) big enough for the longer necks, (b) too big for me to get around myself.
